Animal Law Podcast #75: The Case of the Suffering Salmon ft. Piper Hoffman and Jay Shooster

Mariann Sullivan 25 August 2021 7

On this episode of the Animal Law Podcast, I speak with Piper Hoffman of Animal Outlook and, once again, to Jay Shooster, of the Richman Law Group, about Animal Outlook v Cooke Aquaculture, a consumer protection case brought in the Superior Court of the District of Columbia based in allegations of deceptive advertising about the welfare of fish, specifically the salmon in Cooke’s aquaculture facilities. You may recall seeing some of the footage of the treatment of these salmon when Animal Outlook first released the results of this undercover investigation. You may also recall having heard about it on Our Hen House, our sister podcast, when we had Erin Wing, the undercover operative who took that footage, on to tell us about it back on Episode 587. Now we are covering the next development, i.e., this consumer protection lawsuit that is using the information gathered in that investigation to bely some of the claims made about how these poor fish are treated.

Piper Hoffman brings more than 20 years of legal experience to bear as the Senior Director of Litigation at national farmed animal advocacy group Animal Outlook. Vegetarian since childhood and vegan since the 20th century, she earned her J.D. cum laude from Harvard Law School, where she successfully lobbied the school to offer its first Animal Law class. After a federal clerkship, Piper began her animal law career as a staff attorney at the Animal Legal Defense Fund. She has taught Animal Law at New York City law schools since 2014. Piper is especially proud of her past contributions to Our Hen House’s website, podcast, and much-missed TV show.

Jay Shooster is an associate and the Senior Animal Welfare Legal Fellow at Richman Law Group. Jay has represented nonprofits and consumers in numerous cases against large food companies, including Tyson Foods, Kraft Heinz, and Unilever.
